comment When a card asks you to flip a coin is it against the rules to use a two headed coin?
They might buy it if you called tails. =)

That depends - do you let your opponent examine the coin and then call it in the air? =)

comment What's the name of the theory that the player with the most options has the advantage?
If this player gets shot once, he's going straight to the hospital. I probably shouldn't play games where I can get shot.

comment Do MTG Core sets contain new (never before seen) cards? How does this compare with expansion sets?
You might want to reword your opening statements. It's very confusing, and makes it sound like there won't be many reprints when there are. Also, your statements are geared towards "current standard cards won't be reprinted as much" but that isn't want the OP appears to be asking about.

comment Will Yixlid Jailer negate Snapcaster Mage's flashback-giving ability?
Is there a scenario (barring split second shenanigans) where someone could give their jailer flash to hose my snapcaster? How would it work?

comment Could Cemetery Puca copy a Primordial Hydra?
@Kevin, I disagree with that - in this case, the "new" hydra never enters the battlefield. The Puca is already on the battlefield, and is merely changing its characteristics. So it will gain the "enters the battlefield" ability, but it will never trigger. I agree with your statement if it were cloned with Clone or Vesuvan Doppelganger's enter the battlefield trigger. (Obviously Doppelganger's triggered ability has the same pitfall Puca does.)

Just realized how awkward it would be if you had actually chosen green for your caged sun in a blue-black control deck... but ya know, I'm not judging!

comment Why does a run of 4 in Cribbage score only 4?
@thesunneversets I don't know if you have kids, but I can tell you from experience cribbage is a great way to get them to learn 1) numbers and counting 2) strategy and analysis 3) politics and 4) an appreciation for games! Bonus points for being easy to play in a car =0

comment Can I activate the tap ability of a creature summoned last turn before I have to remove it to my hand?
Sounds like he's using a combo to get a Javelin every turn, and it's perfectly reasonable and legal.

comment Wall of Frost vs a cyphered Hidden Strings
@Cruncher - David is correct, as per 502.3. No player receives priority during the untap step, so no spells can be cast or resolve and no abilities can be activated or resolve. Any ability that triggers during this step will be held until the next time a player would receive priority, which is usually during the upkeep step. (See rule 503, "Upkeep Step.")

comment Pharika's Mender, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Rescue From The Underworld
Also, why wouldn't you put GMOA's trigger on first, and then PM's trigger? This way, you could bring back a Black permanent for a higher devotion count for GMOA's trigger.

Can we use the proper abbreviation for "Gray Merchant of Asphodel", Gary? =)

comment Grave Betrayal vs. Blightsteel Colossus
It's ironic that in Magic, dying is the act of going to the graveyard, where as in real life dying is the cause of going to the graveyard.

comment Can I activate mana abilities even if I don't need the mana?
For the record, it wouldn't have prevented this behavior. A lot of people would pay 1 life for a +1/+1 counter!

comment When do you reveal the top card of your library with Courser of Kruphix and scry lands?
Do you make a distinction between "checking states" and "performing state based actions"? Because I don't. Checking a state but performing no action based on that state is the exact same as not checking the state at all.

comment How does Perplexing Chimera work with Strionic Resonator?
So you could use this to change the target of shock to his illusion creature for a split second, causing him to sacrifice it, and then cause it to target his hexproof creature - brilliant!

comment Can you play older versions of cards in standard?
@RBarryYoung I see. I thought you were saying "The card you use must have the most recent printed text or you can't use it". Turns out we're both saying the same thing, that "printed text means (almost) nothing".

comment Can you play older versions of cards in standard?
@RBarryYoung Sorry, but your link illustrates the exact opposite. They're saying "whatever is printed on the card doesn't matter: only what the oracle text is". The later part of that snippet means "If you have a reason to believe the oracle text and the printed text are different, you have a right to consult the oracle text if it is technically feasible to do so. (i.e. you have internet access.)"

comment MOTO Acronym for MTG Online
@Brian I believe the proper way to say it is "Mo' Dough" as in "It's another way for Wizards to extract mo' dough from our wallets"

comment When can lands be tapped?
By "very early" do you mean "all by the last 5 years?" Mana burn existed until Magic 2010.
